My only VICE

On Monday, VICE published a piece of mine concerning the liberal media’s reliance on unpaid and barely paid labor (“interns”). As I explained later to a writer for Romenesko.com, no traditionally “left” outlet was willing to publish the piece — only VICE — which is itself a commentary on the state of progressive media. I’m tempted to send all the outlets that declined or ignored my pitch a link to this.

On Friday, Inter Press Service published my interview with Madiha Tahir, a journalist who spoke to survivors of US drone strikes in Pakistan for her new documentary, Wounds of Waziristan.

I had another piece on interns that was supposed to be published this week by an outlet named in my VICE piece. Maybe next week.
